View Full Version : Auto transcode of videos using ffmpeg

07-30-2007, 05:24 PM
Hi, I've got a shared hosting account that has ffmpeg, ffmpeg-php and other video type stuff installed, and was wondering if anyone knew of any guides / how-tos or info on how i could use them to automatically transcode uploaded videos (probably to .flv) and then insert them in to a page for playback.

a bit like youtube, but without all the user input etc, i don't want a youtube clone. preferably it would just montior a folder where i could ftp videos of varying format, then any new uploads will be transcoded to .flv then added to a downloads page, or at least made available for me to use elsewhere.

only thread i've found here is http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=112547 which mentions problems about files > 2mb.
